LUCIEN PICCARD Retro 14kt Moonstone Garnet "I Love You" Bracelet
The name Lucien Piccard is known worldwide for excellence in watchmaking. A Swiss company founded in 1923, it used a variety of innovative techniques, creating some of the first slim-line timepieces and incorporating gemstones into the designs. Lucien Piccard watches have been worn by royalty and high profile celebrities throughout the years, but the company also crafted beautiful pieces of jewelry, which are now very appealing to Vintage collectors and lovers of Retro fashion!
This beautiful and romantic bracelet is a signed Lucien Piccard piece from the Retro (ca1940) era! Made of 14kt yellow gold, the piece is comprised of links representing letters, which spell out the words "I LOVE YOU". Each letter link is formed by alluring moonstone cabochons, which have an iridescent, semi-translucent quality. Separating each word is a deep red garnet cabochon link held in a closed-back prong setting. The bracelet fastens with a simple spring ring clasp stamped "14K". This bracelet was likely included as inventory in a store's old stock, and still comes with the original Lucien Piccard box and outer packaging. A very sentimental piece by a legendary maker, it would make a wonderful gift for someone special!
Measurements: The bracelet measures 7" long, 3/8" wide, and 1/8" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the bracelet is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting, moonstones, or garnets, all of which are intact. The spring ring clasp is secure and in good working condition. The original box is in excellent condition, and the outer box is intact, though it shows some signs of age, which is normal for a Retro era piece.
